Help serve those accessing our mobility aids service

Administration volunteers needed for British Red Cross – Thames Valley Area in RG1

This is a very rewarding role providing much-needed support for people who are accessing our service. Based at one of our mobility aids spoke locations, the main element of the role is serving the public who require a wheelchair or other mobility aids equipment. This is the ideal role for someone who enjoys meeting people, can show compassion and empathy and who likes administrative duties with a customer service perspective.


Tasks may include:

  • Liaising with the hub to arrange stock/deliveries/collections.
  • Issuing and receiving wheelchairs (or other mobility aids equipment) using a computer-based stock control system.
  • Demonstrating how to use and look after our wheelchairs (and other equipment)
  • Dealing with enquiries from people wanting to borrow a wheelchair (or other equipment) by telephone and face to face
  • Receiving payments / donations and issuing receipts
  • Contacting service users about overdue and upcoming return of equipment
  • Signposting to other Red Cross services/providers
  • Actively promoting the Retail Mobility Aids offer/website
